DIY Halloween Candy Jar

DIY Halloween Candy Jar

I stay so busy I sometimes find it hard to break away from the day job and the soap to make something other than bath and body products. However, I did find the time to craft this simple DIY Halloween candy jar. It was not only quick and easy to make, but I was able to stick to my daily routine of multi-tasking everything while waiting for the paint and then the glue to dry.

To make things even easier, I had all of the craft supplies for this DIY Li’l Piggy Candy Jar Craft Project delivered to me right at work via Darby Smart so there was no hunting for the things I needed. I seem to be pretty addicted to their craft kits because of this. I love trying new crafts from time to time and Darby Smart makes it so quick and easy for me to do so.

(via a Darby Smart DIY craft kit)

What you’ll need:

a mason jar lid
3″ terra cotta pot
plastic bowl
plastic toy pig (or other animal)
black Krylon Short Cuts Spray Paint
E6000 glue

What you do:

Begin by using the E6000 glue (or superglue gel works too) to glue the top of the mason jar lid to the ring. Allow to dry.

Next spray paint the mason jar lid, the plastic toy pig, and the terra cotta pot. Cover each piece evenly. Allow to dry fully – at least a half hour – then add a second coat.

Once dry use the glue to secure the round plastic bowl to the terra cotta pot by turning the pot upside down and adhering the bowl so the open end faces up. Also glue the painted pig to the top of the mason jar lid.

This DIY Halloween Candy Jar is quick and easy to make and looks great whether you're filling it with candy corn or gum balls! Learn how to make your own!

Once the glue has dried completely, you’re all set to fill your new DIY Halloween Candy Jar with candy or treats for guests. I filled mine with my favorite, candy corn! Want to purchase this DIY Halloween Candy Jar Kit for yourself? Visit Darby Smart here.

What you need:

White Activa Plus Natural Self Hardening Clay
Wilton Silicone Mold, of choice
8-Piece Pottery Tool Kit
Savoir Faire French School Opaque Watercolor Gouache Set or similar
Matte Clear Acrylic Sealer Aerosol Spray
Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil
Paint Brushes
Ribbon or Rafia

Instructions:

How to Make DIY Pumpkin Spice Air Fresheners for your fall home decor!

Begin by kneading the clay in your hands until soft then press it into the cavities of your mold. Fill halfway for thicker shapes or 1/4th of the way for thinner shapes. If your clay is too hard, add a small amount of water to the clay then knead again.

(Note: The original Wilton leaf and pumpkin silicone mold I used for this project is not longer available online. However, they do have a great pumpkin silicone mold as well as this fun leaf and acorn silicone mold.)

How to Make DIY Pumpkin Spice Air Fresheners for your fall home decor!

Allow your pumpkin and leaf shapes to harden in the mold until they are leather like, but not fully dry. Gently remove each of the shapes for your air fresheners from the cavities of the mold.

How to Make DIY Pumpkin Spice Air Fresheners for your fall home decor!

Clean up the edges and top of the pumpkin and leaf shapes using your modeling tools. Repeat for all of your shapes until you’ve reached your desired look.

How to Make DIY Pumpkin Spice Air Fresheners for your fall home decor!

Use your needle tool to cut a hole into each of the pumpkin and leaf shapes you’ve made. This will allow you to hang them. Now allow your shapes to dry until fully hardened and the clay turns a grayish-white.

Painting diy pumpkin spice air fresheners and fall home decor

Now use your watercolors to paint your pumpkin and leaf shapes in fall colors on the tops and sides, but not the bottom. Allow the paint to dry.

Sealing DIY pumpkin spice air fresheners with acrylic sealer

Now take your pumpkins and leaves outside and place on newspaper or cardboard. Spray each of the shapes evenly on the tops and sides with your clear acrylic sealer. Don’t spray the bottoms.

Now use a wide paint brush to paint the fragrance oil onto the back of each of the air fresheners. (You can also use a blend of natural clove, cinnamon and ginger essential oils in lieu of the fragrance oil.) Allow to dry then repeat as desired until you reach desired strength or the air fresheners will no longer hold anymore fragrance. Now hang anywhere in your home or in your car and enjoy!

Spooky Outdoor DIY Halloween Decorations for Giant Squid Tentacles

Every year my neighbor at the end of the block decorates her house for Halloween. She starts planning in summer and on October 1st she starts decorating. This year she created some new spooky outdoor DIY Halloween decorations to add to her existing outdoor Halloween decor. These fantastic handcrafted tentacles were one of those new additions.

To create these tentacles my neighbor used pool noodles – genius, right?! – duct tape, zip ties, burlap and spray paint. First they taped three pool noodles together then they zip tied the egg cartons onto the pool noodles to form the “suckers.” Finally they wrapped burlap around the noodles and then they used spray paint in a variety of colors to give the tentacles life. Of course then they also needed a few random body parts like hands and feet warning you to keep your distance.

Here are some of the other DIY Halloween decorations they created.

Handmade DIY Halloween Decorations - Creepy Dead Dolls Playing

My neighbor up the road has some pretty brilliant Halloween decorations this year. Amongst the graveyard of tombstones in her front yard she has placed creepy looking, painted dolls in various poses. The house itself has boarded up windows with skeletons resting in windowsill planters as well as tied to a front column amidst silken faux spiderwebs. I have to imagine the entire thing took quite a bit of time in both the planning and execution stages, but the end result definitely credits her creativity and the time she put into it.

Following are a few more shots of her home and the Halloween decorations she created. It is by far the most creative Halloween display I think I’ve ever seen around here.
